Weekly PC Sales: Aeons of Aion Ended

The PC digital sales reign of Aion has drawn to a close. The top spot on Steam last week was claimed by the newly-opened Left 4 Dead 2 pre-orders--no surprise considering its pre-order numbers are running at 300% of the original's--while Direct2Drive saw the coronation of Gothic developer Piranha Bytes' new RPG Risen.

Post-apocalyptic MMO Fallen Earth has already dropped from Steam's charts, though it's holding steady at D2D--resisting the advances of the ongoing fifth anniversary $5 sale.

Of course, it's important to note Aion has standard and collector's editions high in both charts, though it's impossible to judge whether combined they would claim the top spot.
